Trying to find Jean Ritchie's lyrics for Christ Church Bells from her Carols for All Seasons album.
The original tune is by Henry Aldrich (1673).

Can anyone help?

Ring along, ring along, o ring the merry christmas bells
A son is born a son is born o ring the merry christmas bells
Not the same?



On her Carols for all Seasons CD, Jean Ritchie called it "Christ Church Bells."
It's in her Celebration of Life Songbook, which is most likely within 20 feet of my chair, but I'm not finding that darn book.

Ah, here it is - page 94 of her Celebration of Life Songbook.

RING THE CHRIST CHURCH BELLS
(new additional words & music by Jean Ritchie)

Ring along! Ring along!
O ring the merry Christmas bells;
A Son is born! A Son is born!
O ring the merry Christmas bells.

Sing the song! Sing the song!
O sing the merry Christmas Time;
A King is born! A King is born!
O sing the Christmas Time.

Ring a ring! Ring a ring!
Dance the merry Christmas Time;
Long live the King! Long live the King!
O ring the Christ Church bells!

I hope I transcribed the tune correctly.
